    Plans have changed for this development. The office part of the project is no longer included. The apartment development will include 210 units and renderings should be available within a few months with construction to start by the end of the year. Also, the developers are in talks to develop the hotel part of the project. Last night the NLR City Council voted to reduce Riverfront Drive from 4 lanes to two to allow on street parking. In other Argenta news part of the Thrive development is now open.

    John Burkhalter announced today that he has acquired 18.7 acres at Central Landing an will soon start construction on a $70 million 339 unit apartment development.
  6. Southern Gourmasian closed because of location/building. The owners are opening their new restaurant an a few weeks "TAE" featuring their take on a southern menu. I wish more breweries would open because most of the food they are offering is very good. The best ribs I have had in LR can be found at Lost Forty and by the way I have seen a number of kids in there eating and I don't think they were exposed to any corruption or no more than brunch at the Purple Cow with their adult beverage choices. Arkansas Burger closed because of continuation of ownership.
  7. I might have to disagree with LR being in a "restaurant recession". Maybe the restaurants which have closed just didn't do a good enough job. To me Del Frisco's just didn't live up to the hype. LR appears to be more of a local owned rather than a chain city. This month will see Cathead's and Ira's opening and in the next few months Arthur;s will be opening in a new location not too far from Del Frisco's.

    Core is now open at their SOMA location. Also, plans have been announced by Rebel Kettle to transfer their brewing operation to a new location southeast of their taproom. The new location will be around 50,000 sq. ft. and will allow them to increase production as well as to add a canning operation.

    A few more pictures of new construction within three blocks along 16th Street east of Main.
  14. At this time there are three major projects for the area with one under development and the other two in the design stages. Smarthouse Way just west of the Broadway Bridge will be made up of a hotel, office space and 200 apartment units. Arkopolis is the name of a 40 acre development planned by the Monde Group west of Rockwater Village. Rockwater Village continues to develop. It contains the 264 unit Riverside at Rockwater apartment complex, the soon to be expanded Residences at Rockwater single home development(39 lots), the under construction Porches at Rockwarter single home development(15 lots) and another single family unnamed development across the street from the Residences(80 lots). Also the development contains the Rockwater Marina and at the corner of Rockwater and Pike will be a 50 unit apartment with plans to open in 2019. Location of the apartment development at the southwest corner of the roundabout . Looking forward to 2019 when the city of NLR begins a project to redevelop Pike Avenue from this point north to Pershing by adding landscaping and making it more pedestrian friendly.
  15. Not much to update and no new projects have been announced. 12 Star Flats now open. Main Street Lofts are now available. In a recent interview with Jimmy Moses he stated that LR would see new condo development within the next 36 months.
